Hello Everyone
I live in England and so rely on kind souls in America to help me find information for my family tree
My GGG uncle James Wilkins moved to Pensacola Escambia in the late 1800's I am researching his son James 1843-1910 He appeared too be a lively character and was arrested by his own brother on more than one occasion
I would like to be able to access the Escambia Court cases for the years 1887 and 1889
Can anyone help?
Kind regards
Sharon nee Wilkins

all these items are publicly available:
https://archive.org/search.php?query=Escambia∧%5B%5D=collection%3A%22usfederalcourts%22∧%5B%5D=collection%3A%22genealogy%22

fyi, they are not text searchable

maybe use this query: Escambia AND collection:("usfederalcourts" OR "genealogy")

https://archive.org/search.php?query=Escambia%20AND%20collection%3A%28"usfederalcourts"%20OR%20"genealogy"%29

you'd need to know what case you are looking for or look at the pdfs in the pages such as https://archive.org/search.php?query=Escambia%20AND%20collection%3A%28"usfederalcourts"%20OR%20"genealogy"%29
doubtful there are cases that old in the court records. no results for https://archive.org/search.php?query=%28Wilkins%20AND%20Escambia%29%20AND%20collection%3A%28%22usfederalcourts%22%20OR%20%22genealogy%22%29 or https://archive.org/search.php?query=%28Wilkins%20AND%20Escambia%29 This post was modified by Jeff Kaplan on 2019-09-07 18:51:11
